Henrikh Mkhitaryan: Subject to a ¿23 million (£19.5m) bid from Borussia Dortmu

Shakhtar Donetsk CEO Sergei Palkin confirmed the Bundesliga side's offer for the 24-year-old midfielder, but insists it falls way short of the club's own valuation.

Instead, the Ukrainian outfit want one instalment of €30m (£25m) for the player, who has gone AWOL after not showing up with the rest of the Shakhtar squad for pre-season training.

His impending departure could have been helped by Shakhtar's acquisition of Brazilian Fred from SC International for €15m (£12.5m), announced by the club on Wednesday.

Palkin told Futbol: "I don't know where Mkhitaryan is now, solely his agent knows this.

Official position

"Borussia offered €23m (£19.5m) for the midfielder. I contacted Mkhitaryan's agent yesterday. I wrote to him about the official position of the club.

"We are prepared to sell Mkhitaryan for €30m (£25m), this offer stands for the next 10 days. If Mkhitaryan wishes to leave, they have to pay this amount for him.

"€30m, one installment. If there is a club that can pay that amount, we are ready to make a deal."

While Liverpool have been linked with Mkhitaryan as Brendan Rodgers seeks to overhaul his squad, Palkin claims there has been no approach from the Reds as yet.

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
